Broken Songlines || Three Manuscripts

A journey from China to Europe, an opposite Marco Polo, accompanied by three ancient manuscripts: a Buddhist, a Sufi and a Nestorian one. The project concerns minorities fleeing persecution, nomads and pilgrims. Under our eyes the richness of complexity is disappearing, in lands where many diverse peoples have cohabited and interacted for thousands of years, sharing saints, gestures, symbols, myths, songs and gods. Visual atlas of threatened minorities and shared holy places will be created. My itinerary is following these three ancient texts, creating its own inter-religious path, linked to the history of today.
